Today I have Illamasqua Fragile and Wet n' Wild Fast Dry Teal of Fortune for you! First, a bottle shot:
Fragile is from Illamasqua's spring collection, I'mperfection. I love these polishes because of the stinking spots! I love the stinking spots! Some really good swatches of the I'mperfection collection are here. As for Teal of Fortune, I got this one as a gift (I got Fragile as a gift as well). I lurrrvvveee this one! It may be a dupe (Nail Polish Speak: dupe- n. a exact duplicate of another polish, e.g. same opacity, formula, and color) for Zoya Charla, though.
This is two coats of Illamasqua Fragile on all fingers, and on the ring finger is one coat of Wet n' Wild Fast Dry Teal of Fortune over Fragile.
Formulas: Illamasqua was a bit thin on the first try, if you do thin coats, but if you do thick coats, you could get away with one. I did thin coats, and only used two.
Teal of Fortune was very opaque as well; I used one coat over Fragile.
So, you may be wondering, why did she put that $1 polish over the beautiful Illamasqua? Well, for one, TOF is beautiful sparklinesses, and I wanted to see if the speckles would show through the over polish. It did, but would probably work better with a lighter color. I might try that in the future…
You can buy Illamasqua polishes at Sephora for $16 in the US. As for Wet n' Wild, you can buy them at CVS Pharmacy, Kmart, Longs Drugs, Rite Aid, Ulta, Walgreens, and Walmart varying prices but usually between $1 and $5.
